"This is a no-fuss microwave potato dish that really makes a hit. I serve it for special occasions, as well as any old time. It's from the book MICROWAVE COOKING by Beverley Piper."
Serving Size: 1 (208 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I couldnt believe how wonderful these were. I am not one too cook in the microwave and they sounded too simple to be so good but they were excellent! The potatoes had a really great flavour and they hardly had any fat in them. I would serve them as a side dish for company any day. If anyone wonders I weighed the poatoes and it took 6 medium size."
"Ditto Tara's comments. PaulaT, you're under-rating this recipe by calling it tastey. It's absolutlely scrumptuous! Wish I had company right now so I could show off. Oh well, more for me! Thanks PaulaT. Oh yeah. I did substitute evaporated skim milk just because I had an open can in the fridge"
""These potatoes are great!!!" was the response I recieved after my husband at his first bite. Its almost embarrasing how easy these potatoes are to make. This is a definite keeper."
"This is an excellent & easy side dish! I used Nature's Seasonings by Morton in place of the salt & pepper (but it's basically salt & pepper with a little garlic powder). Otherwise, I changed nothing. This one goes into my "keeper" binder!"
"These were very easy and quick to prepare and left the stove top and oven free for other dishes I was preparing. However, I did think that they were missing something; I'm so used to eating this type of dish in a cream sauce that my taste buds felt a little cheated.I think next time I'll add some garlic and a little cheese. This potato dish is one that I'll use many times over though."
"These were simple and good. I think I might try cooking the onions a little longer, they were kind of crispy. I highly suggest using a metal grater to slice the potatoes and onions. next time I might try adding whipping cream instead of milk."
"These are great!!So easy with such a lovely taste.I will be making these once a week.Highly recommended."
"one evening i decided to "coax" my husband into helping with supper, so i pulled up the category of potatoes and let him have at it. he found this and made it. i was impressed with the way it turned out and the ease of it all. my husband was impressed with himself and i was thrilled with his help!!"
"I was very surprised by how flavorful these potatoes were! I expected them to be somewhat bland...not so. They were delicious. I also like this dish because it is made with ingredients that most cooks always have in their kitchen. I'll make this one again!"
"Ok maybe it's just my tastes. I was only going to give 2 stars but my mother in law really liked them alot so I gave it another star. She even had another serving which is unheard of. I thought it needed more spices. It was ok but I expected more. I did like the fact it was in the microwave and freed more of the stove. It's different from mashed anyway."
"We loved these potatoes! We don't do a lot of microwave cooking. This recipe may change that. We'll be making these again. Thanks for posting!"
"Who would have guessed a few ingredients and a microwave would produce a OMG!!! side dish. I used a 11x7 dish, and a madoline for slicing. Cook time was perfect. Served this with recipe#31958 and recipe#214215"
"I had my doubts these were going to taste so good since they seemed so simple with on hand ingredients but they are great!Delicious and I love being able to just put it all in the Microwave.Thank you."
"Simple elegance! I have allergies, and even with my subs it was great. Subs: orig., unsweetened almond milk for cow's milk; soy marg for butter; shallots for onions. I skipped soaking the potatoes in cold water because I was short on time. I used 3-4 French gray shallots from the garden-- amazing, delicate flavor. Chives could also be a good sub. I think it might have exploded a little in the microwave-- opps! LOL."
"This was awesome!!! My only changes were to add cheddar and parmesan between the layers, and broil at the end for 2 minutes to brown. YUMMY!!"
"I didn't think these would turn out at great as they did. So easy to quickly throw together and ingredients that I always have on hand. This is a keeper at my house."
"This recipe turned out so much better than I expected it to. I wanted something to go with pork tenderloin but didn't want mashed or roasted potatoes - searched zaar and I came upon this recipe. I left out the onions b/c my kids don't really like them, I used 5-6 medium potatoes scrubbed with with the skin on - sliced thin - didn't soak. I layered them in a 2.5 qt round casserole dish that I sprayed with cooking spray. I seasoned each layer with garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder - then on top I added the butter, milk and paprika. I cooked for 15 minutes b/c I wasn't sure if my dish was deeper than the original recipe. I let them stand for probably 20 minutes or so before we actually ate - the kids LOVED them. Will definitely make these easy, delicious potatoes again and again!!"
"These turned out so good. I cant believe how easy they were in the microwave. I had to cook them four more minutes then called for but that could have been because I had more potatoes then a pound and a half. I will make this again, it saved time and stovetop. Thank you for sharing this."
"These were quite good - I added a little bit of cheese between each layer and more on top. Lovely. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Good recipe! Nice to have something you can make in the micro & leave stove and oven free. Not having a double oven, micro dishes sure come in handy! I reheated the leftovers in a skillet with a little olive oil. I added some green pepper & green onion. However you reheat them, they are just as tasty the next day."
